The Radio Dept. :: "The New Improved Hypocrisy"

Swedish elections are on the horizon, scheduled for this Sunday. While this is certainly a corner of the geopolitical quilt that normally would not make any waves in the world of Pop, in this case we will make an exception. Dealing with an increasing jingoist and isolationist right-wing movement, The Radio Dept. launch new single "The New Improved Hypocrisy" directly in the face of the fear threatening to dominate the discourse in their home country. The lyrics are as direct as the sound is typically sunny. The message is a plea for tolerance in an age growing ever more concerned with self and more and more irrationally afraid of The Other. Hell, if Sweden is on the run to the Right, one wonders what will happen to the rest of the world running south?
